What is Orthopaedics
Orthopaedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. This includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves – the system that allows you to move, work and be active.
Orthopaedists care for patients of all ages, from newborn babies with specific disorders, young athletes requiring arthroscopic surgery, aging adults with arthritis and everyone in between. Anybody can fracture a bone or strain a muscle. If something impacts your mobility, chances are orthopaedic specialists can help.
